Manager, Community Education and Outreach

Reports to: Associate Director, Special Programs

Womankind uses the multidimensionality of our Asian heritage to work alongside survivors of gender-based violence as they build a path to healing. We are working tirelessly to create a future where we Rise Above Violence and our communities can innovate towards collective well-being, restoration, and social justice. In addition to promoting healing and safety through service provision, Womankind promotes gender justice through research, coalition building, policy analysis, and community education and mobilization.

The Manager of Community Education and Outreach is a critical position at Womankind. It is through this role that Womankind not only shares information about our services, but also expands our reach, connecting with our community to dialogue around gender-based violence, and its impact within our communities. The work of this position is to increase our connection to the local communities where our sites are located, as well as broaden our reach across New York City and beyond. Community education and outreach are essential parts of a comprehensive approach to reducing and preventing gender-based violence, as imparting awareness and knowledge will slowly shift deeply-embedded societal and cultural norms within the community.
